How Is This Possible?

House Bill 3352 (2021) put into law a program called “Cover All People.” The program is now known as “Healthier Oregon.”

Who Is Eligible?

Thanks to Healthier Oregon, people may now qualify for OHP if they:

  • Live in Oregon, and
  • Meet income and other criteria.

Starting July 1, 2023, immigration/citizenship status no longer affects whether someone qualifies for OHP.

For example:

  • Before, a 45-year-old without a qualifying immigration status could only get CWM benefits (also known as emergency Medicaid).
  • As of July 1, 2023, this person is eligible for full OHP benefits.
